Scadden boats are tooted as being light weight because they use super thin fabric to make them. If you hit something like a rock, you are very likely to put a hole in it. Keep some tear aid with you if you plan to float it down a river. That said...you can always try making it into a self bailer by putting some holes in it. You would put them between the tubes and the floor, but there might not be enough flotation in the boat alone to keep it from filling up with water due to your weight. Part of the flotation comes from it being a bail bucket boat. You can reclose the holes by gluing an old dry bag over the holes if it doesn't float you.

RMR makes a nice inexpensive ducky. I personally bought an Aire Tomcat and love it.

That Scadden would make a good loaner boat. One time and the person you loan it to won't ask to borrow a boat from you again. 😁
